Great new mystery series set in Ireland

Murder in Galway (A Home to Ireland Mystery Book 1)

By: Carlene O’Connor

Rating: 5 of 5


I’ve read all of another series by this author. While it was also set in Ireland, it was told from the perspective on a born and bred Irish woman. This series is told from the perspective of an American woman who is visiting Ireland for the first time.

I found it easy to relate to many of the attitudes of this character, least of all of her attitude towards black and white pudding. I’ll leave it to you to read what it is and what she thinks of it.

Tara has arrived and is there to spread her mother’s ashes in Galway Bay. Well, that was her intent on her first day.

Tara is also there to meet, for the first time, her Uncle Johnny. Johnny and her mother were estranged for many years and Tara has no idea why. However, finding Johnny is harder than she expected.

Finding a dead body turns out to be much easier. Johnny is a suspect and Tara dives in to help clear his name and to find him.

I laughed out loud many times and kept a silly grin on my face throughout. Except during the murders, of course. I’m already planning to read the next installment of this series and look forward to more in the future.
